On Friday and Saturday, 22-23 April 2016, the CMS Family got together for an internal workshop to exchange experiences with addressing what is considered the greatest threat to the marine mammals, sea turtles, fish and seabirds that our treaties and Memoranda of Understanding (MOU) were set up to conserve.
Roseline Beudels-Jamar de Bolsée , the CMS Scientific Councillor from Belgium, who has been involved from the very beginning in the Convention’s efforts to conserve Sahelo-Saharan antelopes, has informed the Secretariat of some long overdue positive developments concerning the Scimitar-horned Oryx. Twenty-five animals have just been shipped from Abu Dhabi to Chad meaning that after an absence of a quarter of a century, Oryx are back on Chadian soil.
For the fourth consecutive year the operatic choir, Chorale Lirica San Rocco from Bologna, Italy will be giving a benefit concert in Bonn, as part of the annual celebration of World Migratory Bird Day. The proceeds from the concert will be donated to a project related to bird conservation. The concert entitled “Flight through a Decade” includes a programme of ten arias taken from major works each set in a different country, mirroring the various States that birds pass through on their annual migration.
